Hello Joyers! It's time for AC again.

We have a new feature being added to AC this round in the form of a small report section in which we ask that you summarize and explain what your character has been doing (or will be doing!) in the current chapter. We will use this in order to shape the game plot via IC actions in the upcoming chapter. This is optional, but we're unlikely to incorporate an element that isn't directly reported to us. To add some incentive, we'll be providing 10 bonus points for filling out the summary and including relevant links in the report.


The full details of the AC system can be reviewed here but to save you some clicking time, here's the skinny:

Time Line


You will have until 11:59 PM (CST), March 2nd, to submit your AC. AC periods run during the last three days of the current month and the first two days of the next month, with strikes and sweeps completed on the third prior to apps opening. If you know you won't be able to submit AC ahead of time, you can have a friend submit it on your behalf, or contact the mods privately (here) to work out other arrangements. Failure to report AC without previous arrangements will result in an automatic strike.


Accrual


✗ New characters need to accrue 10 points to pass AC their first month.
✗ Established characters need to accrue 20 points.
✗ All points after accrual are converted into bonus points, or in game lingo, HP to spend on regains, pets, and etc!


Requirements


✗ At least half of the threads turned in for AC should be threads started for the month in question (for instance, during February).
✗ The other half can be threads started at any time (i.e., backtags).
✗ Top levels created with sub-levels (ex. Phase I, II, & III) count as one top level
✗ Bonus points can be gained from threads started at any time.
✗ Inbox and TDM threads can be turned in for bonus points only.

Point Breakdown


✗ Network/Log Post or Top Level (5 Points)
✗ Network /Inbox Tag (1 Point)
✗ Log Tag/TDM (2 Points)


Submitting


As of now, we're going to do a monthly post to make it easier for your mods to track. If you have more than one character, please post their AC info in separate comments. Please use the following template/format exactly--it helps the mods catch any discrepancies and make sure you don't miss out on any points you may be owed!

An example can be found here.

Logs:
Link A (X Comments) = Points gained
Link B (X Comments) = Points gained
(cont.)
Network:
Link A (X Comments) = Points gained
Link B (X Comments) = Points gained
(cont.)

Bonus Points:
Inbox:
Link A (X Comments) = Points gained
Link B (X Comments) = Points gained
(cont.)
TDM:
Link A (X Comments) = Points gained
Link B (X Comments) = Points gained
(cont.)

Chapter Summary: Please tell us what your character has been doing this current chapter and what you plan to have them do before the end of it! In particular, we'd like to know how they're interacting with their faction. This section is for bonus HP and to help the mods incorporate IC actions into the chapter. Please include relevant links in this section, it's okay if they're not completed yet! As a reminder, this is worth +10 points!

Example:

Joe was contacted by Hyperion (link) and attended the Peace Summit (link) where he argued for x, y, and z. He also picked up a warrant issued on behalf of Schmoe to transport unknown cargo to x destination (link).

Total: AC points = | Total HP gained = (Sum + Summary Bonus (10) - AC points)
